Nokia announces C3, C6 and E5
Nokia has just announced three new handsets – the C6, C3 and E5. The trio are all designed with messaging fans in mind. The Nokia E5 and C3 phones both feature mini-QWERTY keyboards, while the C6 is a touchscreen beauty with an accompanying slide-out QWERTY pad.
The C6 is the star of the show – as well as its lovely 3.2inch touchscreen and Symbian S60 smarts, you’ll find a five megapixel camera, a second camera for video calling, FM radio, a-GPS, Wi-Fi, and HSDPA for speedy web surfing. There’s a microSD slot rather than spacious flash memory option on the N97 however.
The Nokia C6 will be out In Q2 in black and white, priced at €220 (£195) before tax.
The Nokia C3 is the budget social networking option. At under £80 SIM-free, its specs place it firmly in the budget end of the market – there’s Symbian S40, no 3G, a dinky two megapixel camera and a a low-res 320×240, 2.4in screen.
But the C3 offers INQ-like messaging at a good price – there’s a full QWERTY keyboard and Wifi, so you can surf at speed in hotspots.
Lastly, the E5 comes rocking the business end of Nokia’s new family – it’s a QWERTY handset, running Symbian S60 and stuffing in all the connectivity you could need on for a surprisingly budget price.
Inside you’ll find HSDPA, Wi-Fi and A-GPS, as well as a microSD slot and 3.5mm audio port. There’s a 2.4inch QVGA display, and it’ll pull in all your emails with full Exchange support.
The Nokia E5 will cost a wallet-pleasing £160 before tax when it hits in the late Summer.
